The Goose is Getting Fat

Who knew Christmas would creep up so quickly this year? I feel like I haven't had any time to enjoy the season. Work has been hectic, our home life has been crazy, and there are just too many darn obligations to take care of. Back when I was a kid, I never would have guessed there would be a time when I'd actually want December to slow down and Christmas to take its own sweet time to arrive.

I am really looking forward to see how my son reacts to Christmas this year. I think this is the first Christmas he completely "gets" what is going on and he is totally excited for the day to come. He's been a patient boy, though, and he's been waiting with a great deal of restraint for what he is sure will be a bountiful morning of presents.

Big on his list: Hot Wheels Sharkbite Bay playset, Battling Bugs, and a Matchbox Haunted House (when he told Santa he wanted a "haunted house" it was humorous to see the jolly old elf's curious reaction). Since he can't read this, I'll just go ahead and say that he won't be disappointed come December 25.

And, I'll be honest: I love opening presents, too! I'm anxious to see what will be under the tree for me on Christmas morning. The only things I really asked for are (as my son pronounces them) "bee-do games," so if all goes according to plan, I'll be partaking in some fun digital entertainment come Christmas day.
